Summary

Only since Victorian times has it been standard practice for mothers and  fathers to send their babies to sleep alone, away from the parental bed  - often in another room. This book reveals how babies who sleep with  their parents benefit by getting virtually a full night's sleep.;The  author explains the advantages of this radical form of baby care,  including its benefits for breastfeeding mothers, reviews the history of  babies in the bed and, through interviews with parents, explores  attitudes to the idea. The book also contains a fresh perspective on the  tragedy of cot death, as well as practical advice on how to sustain  your sex life, hints on safety in the bed and answers to all the common  objections. Finally, the author deals with the moment when the baby  leaves its parents' bed.

    From Michael Haag, bestselling author of The Templars: The History and the Myth, comes The Tragedy of the Templars, an exciting new look at the rise of Templar power and the saga of their destruction. Founded on Christmas Day 1119 in Jerusalem, the Knights Templar was a religious order dedicated to defending the Holy Land and its Christian pilgrims in the decades after the First Crusade. Legendary for their bravery and dedication, the Templars became one of the wealthiest and most powerful bodies of the medieval world—and the chief defenders of Christian society against growing Muslim forces. In The Tragedy of the Templars: The Rise and Fall of the Crusader States, Haag masterfully details the conflicts and betrayals that sent this faction of powerful knights spiraling from domination to condemnation. This stirring and thoroughly researched work of historical investigation includes maps and full-color photographs of important cultural sites, many of which doubled as battlefields during the Crusades.

    In the early days of World War I, Germany unveiled a new weapon - the mobile 42cm (16.5 inch) M-Geröt howitzer. At the time, it was the largest artillery piece of its kind in the world and a closely guarded secret. When war broke out, two of the howitzers were rushed directly from the factory to Liege where they quickly destroyed two forts and compelled the fortress to surrender. After repeat performances at Namur, Maubeuge and Antwerp, German soldiers christened the howitzers 'Grosse' or 'Dicke Berta' (Fat or Big Bertha) after Bertha von Krupp, owner of the Krupp armament works that built the howitzers. The nickname was soon picked up by German press which triumphed the 42cm howitzers as Wunderwaffe (wonder weapons), and the legend of Big Bertha was born. This book details the design and development of German siege guns before and during World War I. Accompanying the text are many rare, never-before-published photographs of 'Big Bertha' and the other German siege guns. Colour illustrations depict the most important aspects of the German siege artillery.

    Enough of the imbalance that is causing the degradation of our environment, the demise of our democracies, and the denigration of ourselves. Enough of the pendulum politics of left and right and paralysis in the political center. We require an unprecedented form of radical renewal. In this book Henry Mintzberg offers a new understanding of the root of our current crisis and a strategy for restoring the balance so vital to the survival of our progeny and our planet.With the collapse of the communist regimes of Eastern Europe, Western pundits declared that capitalism had triumphed. They were wrong—balance triumphed. A healthy society balances a public sector of respected governments, a private sector of responsible businesses, and a plural sector of robust communities. Communism collapsed under the weight of its overbearing public sector. Now the “liberal democracies” are threatened—socially, politically, even economically—by the unchecked excesses of the private sector.Radical renewal will have to begin in the plural sector, which alone has the inclination and the independence to challenge unacceptable practices and develop better ones. Too many governments have been co-opted by the private sector. And corporate social responsibility can't compensate for the corporate social irresponsibility we see around us “They” won't do it. We shall have to do it, each of us and all of us, not as passive “human resources,” but as resourceful human beings.Tom Paine wrote in 1776, “We have it in our power to begin the world over again.” He was right then. Can we be right again now? Can we afford not to be?

    Sometimes with the pace of business we dont take the time to review the thoughts and concepts of the great people of the past. When I read this book I was amazed at his level of thinking. We tend to believe that our generation is always coming up with the great thoughts and ideas. If this is your thinking you need to step back 100 years or so to the life and times of Henry Ford. All we are doing is reinventing what he did. 
    
    It was amazing to read that many of the ideas and ideals around the turn of the twentieth century are still used today. Ford goes into great detail describing the origination of the Ford motor company, the labor force, the assembly line, and financial situations of the company. At a time when most of the male workers across the country were working for fifty cents a day, Ford incorporated a minimum wage of from three to five dollars a day. Henry Ford did a good job writing this book as well. There were several examples of sage advice include which are quoted by speakers and writers to this day. He was truly a visionary, business minded genius. The world was certainly improved by his presence. 
    
    Henry Ford is the classical writer on management. He stands on a same line with Sun Tzu, Niccolò Machiavelli, Robert Owen, Frederick Taylor and Henri Fayol.
    
    In the book My Life and Work, Henry Ford presents his view on different things: management philosophy, social life, human abilities and capabilities, the role of the bankers in the production, good debt and bad debt, the labor and the speculation, the roots of poverty and the ways to solve it, the role of the government, and other important topics.
    
    This is the foundation of all the management literature, and every modern manager should be aware with his Fords work.

    “One of the Ten Best Plays of the Year!  ‘No longer merely promising, Jon Robin Baitz is now a major playwright.’” – Time Magazine"Jon Robin Baitz is the American theatre's most fascinating playwright of conscience. Three Hotels packs an emotional punch that lingers."--Michael Kuchwara, Associated PressDazzling audiences with the linguistic artistry, keen insights and comprehensive vision of Three Hotels, Jon Robin Baitz enhances his reputation as one of America’s most important playwrights.  In three dramatic monologues that progress from intellectual cynicism to heartbreaking honesty, he reveals the emotional and physical wounds sustained by the foot soldiers of the conglomerates operating in Third World countries and, by extension, by all Americans adrift in the seas of international commerce and politics.Also included are several shorter works (Four Monologues, Coq au Vin, It Changes Every Year and Recipe for One, or A Handbook for Travelers), each of which, like Three Hotels, “is the fervent prayer that there will be something in this wrecked world to salvage.” Jon Robin Baitz is the author of The Film Society, Other Desert Cities, The End of the Day, and The Substance of Fire, which he adapted into a major motion picture.  He was the showrunner on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters.  He also wrote the screenplay for the upcoming film Stonewall directed by Roland Emmerich.  He lives in New York.
